Asian languages subtitles (Japanese, Korean, Chinese) / CEA-708



we are in the process to implement a subtitle solution for the live streaming of operas.

One option is based on CEA-708. 

Our workflow: SDI into onsite Elemental encoder, RTMP out into Ooyala. We are using V4 Player.

Does anybody have experiences with processing and displaying Japanese, Korean, Chinese - based on CEA 708? 

Thank you and best regards,
